    This drivers is causing a BSOD with "irql not less or equal" on my APU.
    Had to revert to a older one.
    CPU - A10-7860K

    I would expect nothing less than trouble from a beta driver that has not been signed off by Microsoft.

    This is Microsoft signed though, but I don't have much faith in a digital signature myself other than it holding up the driver release for one or two weeks during the process although it can be faster. :)

    EDIT: Meaning even some bad drivers have been WHQL'd or gotten signed after the initial beta release with no additional fixes. Goes for both AMD and NVIDIA and probably other devices too so I don't know exactly how Microsoft is "testing" these but I guess it's mainly just slapping a signature on the .dll files though AMD's own at least is enough to not trip the driver install process and Windows into warning about unsigned code and having to jump through hoops to install it.

    EDIT: Or I'm just a bit too used to AMD over the years and a few known issues here and there although this mouse stutter thing really should be a high priority fix for the current known issues list. :)

    You know that the only Diff between WHQL & beta is just the signature right?
    Drivers are always tested By AMD & insiders before release...''Signed by Microsoft'' doesnt mean anything.

    Only after an alt/z things responded/worked again.

    other than that all is fine..and 3DMark (4k) score climbed ~100 points

    Hmm, propably Yes.
    but You need to test it out, You can always do Last Restore point in Windows.
    So not a Big deal anyways this dayZ :D

    ==
    Also new driver is Fine by my opinion.
    Performs Great (maby a little better in some areas - AC: O dips now to ~35-42 FPS & not 20 ;) with FreeSync is just OK )
    There is lots of room to improve for Vega Tech.... ATI delivers It monthly :cool: like a clockwork.

    This drivers are running great on both of my APUs 2400g and 2200g , got improved scores in Firestrike and timespy. Got a little boost on wreckfest at 1080p. Great drivers , nothing bad to report.

    I would assume Ryzen Threadripper support then as the change here for the newest motherboards and CPU models or what it was called again in full, anyways it should be compatible with these now. :)

    From the release notes, first one in particular for the X2990 and X2950 CPU models I think was what they were called?

    Is there anyone who can comment on these drivers with BFV Alpha?
    Are you getting performance similar to BF1 or worst then BF1?

    Welp, I plugged in my old Z97/4790K box to test, and the 18.8.1 driver still force installs the amdkmpfd.sys on the Intel motherboard...I've never seen this happen before on an Intel chipset mobo, hopefully AMD designed the PCI-E filter driver with other companies chipsets in mind...

    i think thats a huge problem, we will have to see what will happen with the next drivers. i hope amd is aware of that.

    i personally, am skipping this driver.

    It doesnt seem to have negatively affected anything I've tried so far, but I agree, this seems like a mistake, especially since I've never seen them force install their filter driver on an Intel mobo.
